Reinvention is on the menu.

In keeping with my New Year’s Resolution to write more, goddamnit, comes the growing dissatisfaction with my blog layout. I have not changed this thing for over six years. That’s right – I spent a vast amount of my pregnant time tweaking and altering and reloading various WordPress themes…when I had time for such things.

Man…there have been some improvements in layouts since that time! What remains the same is the, well, sameness of so very many of them. What I would love, in an ideal world, is to go with my laptop to a minimally populated island with high speed broadband and divide my life into happy thirds: sleeping, rebuilding my website, and languishing on the beach with food, sunshine and swimming.

And as pigs fly into the sunset my realistic option is to find a theme I like and install it, with hopefully a minimal amount of tweaking required. Trouble is, I modded this current theme here there and everywhere and recollect none of it :O I have trudged back through the archives to 2007 and re-discovered MAMP – I recall it being very useful in such situations and figure I can re-learn how to use it – thus rescuing my teeming throngs of readers from being greeted by a site in various stages of re-invention… hopefully.

Meanwhile I have an almost-six-year-old doing a five day intensive swim course and she is lying next to me as I type, after the first day, with a throat infection. FUN AND GAMES!


Going to Pot


Duck and Run and Whine!

    Snap! We are in our second week of intensive swimming. It is hard work, but worth it I think.

    I am *so* tempted to go that second week – I think the intensive thing is much more useful that half an hour a week. But we already have a committment next Wednesday…sigh…
